The coolest part is that I know them personally!

Have you ever entered a national contest and thought "Eh, I will never win, but what the heck, why not give it a shot?" A Bangor area couple did just that, but guess what? They actually won!

Brian & Kaylie Goodie have a beautiful new Toyota 4Runner truck with a price tag of $55,000. But in their case, it is totally free. See, it does pay to enter things like this.

The contest was called Toyota's "Great Outdoors Giveaway" The Goodies signed up last winter, and probably didn't think much of it, but then the phone call came.

In this day and age, it is hard to decipher if something is legit. You should see my spam e-mail folder. If any of that were accurate, I'd be a rich man. But this was the real deal.

They picked up their new ride at Downeast Toyota in Brewer, which is a special place to me, because my dad, Chuck Jameson, has been selling cars there for over 25 years!

Brian & Kaylee are two very cool people, and I have no doubt they will take full advantage of their good fortune. Congrats!

Oh, and in case you don't remember, my dad is a local TV star in his Downeast Toyota commercials.
